Literacy Month Illinois State Library

Each year in Illinois, Secretary of State Jesse White recognizes September as Literacy Month. It is a time when we are urged to renew our efforts to increase literacy levels for Illinois adults and families. Internationally, since 1967 UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) has designated September 8 as International Literacy Day.

Below, the State Library's Literacy Office offers suggestions for celebrating Literacy Month with your family and in your community.
